for joining us at noon. i'm andrea roane. the obama administration is reporting a dramatic improvement in the healthcare website. as tara mergener reports, there are still plenty of challenges ahead. >> reporter: the frantic work to fix the government's healthcare website is starting to pay off. president obama's technology troubleshooters say healthcare.gov can now handle 50,000 users at that time a time, or up to 800,000 each day. advisor jeffrey zion said the site now works most of the time for most users. >> we executed hundreds of software fixes, and hardware upgrades. and the site is now stable and operating at its intended capacity, with greatly improved performance. >> reporter: the department of health and human services said system failures have fallen from 6% in october to less than 1%. and responses have declined from 8 minutes to less than one. the obama administration had promised the fixes by this past weekend. congress is watching closely, because the success or failure of healthcare reform is expected to be a critical factor in next year's midterm elections. already th
believe this website is and will function effectively. >> president obama's technology troubleshooters say healthcare.gov can handle 800,000 each day. >> the success or failure of healthcare reform sexfected to -- is expected to be critical in this year's election. >> there's a spot waiting for me. >> a new food truck lottery took effect. for the rest of december, eight popular locations, 95 spaces are reserved for the lottery winners. >> the stock market kicked off the month of december with a loss. even though a record number of people came out to stop over the long thanksgiving weekend, they spent less for the first time in nearly seven years. >> blackberry's ceo says the one-time leader in the smart phone industry is no longer for sale, but that the struggle company will focus again on delivering. after months of speculation, d.c. mayor, vincent gray will run for reelection. >> everybody will ask about this federal investigation. talking about the 2010 campaign, for which the u.s. attorney said there was a corrupt campaign. the mayor said all along he has done nothing wrong a
obama's administration says healthcare.gov is working properly 90% of the time. the website appears to have met the self-imposed deadline of december 1st to be up and running 80% of the time. meanwhile, nbc news confirms 100,000 americans successfully selected insurance plans in november. it's a huge increase from the 27,000 able to do so in october. the question now is whether the fixes will be enough to repair some of the heavy political damage caused by the disastrous launch. steve handelsman is live on capitol hill with the latest on that. the glitches were causing democrats to consider breaking ranks on the affordable care act. is everyone back in line now? >> reporter: i don't think they are. the glitches remain. glitch is the term the obama care people would love everybody to use. it kind of implies that these are small, fixable problems when, in fact, serious systemic problems remain. that 100,000 number, give or take 10% or 15% each way that signed up to the moment on the federal obama care exchange is more than doubled by the state exchanges. there's a relative handful of
nominations. half of them have occurred during the obama administration. only 23 district court nominations have been filibustered in the entire history of our country, 23. you know what? 20 of them have been in the last four and a half years. >> stephen: hey, republicans wouldn't have to block them if obama nominated conservatives, like, say, republican senator chuck hagel. i mean, that guy-- what's that? they filibustered him, too? well, that just proves they're bipartisan. they'll filibuster anyone obama nominates. ( laughter ) and we can't trust the democrats with all this powers, folks. they can't do anything right. at harry reid's press conference announcing the end of the filibuster, they misspelled filibuster with two "ls." ( laughter ) that says philly-busters, which i assume are cops who arrest female horses. ( laughter ) and i don't even believe the democrats are really against the filibuster. because their poster clearly says they're again-sts this spem. but they niewkd it. they went ahead and niewkd it. what's going to happen in washington now? something? we were this close to
gonzalez, abc news in the bronx, new york. >> the obama administration said the worst of the glitches on its health care website have been fixed. i spoke with ginger gibson, the congressional reporter for politico. >> so far, it is getting a passing grade but it will be incomplete at this point as it begins its second attempt to rollout. there haven't been real problems at this point. people are still able to login. haven't seen any big crashes or problems but it is not over yet. ,ots of people out shopping monday will probably be a big test. >> so when can we expect a mission accomplished banner? [laughter] >> i think the white house is being pretty cautious. a lot of tepid cheering from democrats today who don't want to be seen as kicking the football when they could still be down by seven points. >> the president's approval ratings are down quite a bit. he is seeing his numbers continue to fall. the rollout of this website has not been good for president obama. people are starting to question whether they trust him. republicans see that is something they can capitalize on, looking
